Europe's Show Palace

London has Buckingham Palace, Paris has Versailles. The highlight in Berlin is … Friedrichstadt-Palast. And it isn’t filled with dusty memories of the nobility, but is instead the home of Europe’s show palace. On the largest theatre stage in the world, the hottest (and biggest) show in the capital is celebrated: More than 100 of the best soloists, dancers, musicians and artists make a trip to Friedrichstadt-Palast an absolute must-see for every Berlin resident and visitor. It’s no coincidence that with 700,000 visitors annually, it is by far Berlin’s No. 1 stage.

Berlin's most spectacular stage is centrally located on Friedrichstraße in the East End Theatre District. Friedrichstadt-Palast is the last large historic landmark building from the GDR. Its history dates back to 1919 when theatre genius Max Reinhardt opened the Great Theatre. In the 1920s with revues by Erik Charell, the theatre set the pace for the Roaring Twenties. Legendary Marlene Dietrich and later American divas like Shirley Bassey and Liza Minnelli stood on stage here. Because the old building had structural problems, the revue theatre was rebuilt at Friedrichstraße 107 and inaugurated in April 1984 with spectacular revues, variety theatre and cabaret. Up to the fall of the Berlin Wall, Friedrichstadt-Palast was in fact the theatre to go to in the East Bloc.

After the fall of the Wall, ‘the Palace’ established itself as the first address in reunified Germany for extravagant and spectacular show entertainment and has been one of Berlin’s hottest major attractions ever since. To this day, it offers technical marvels and abounds with superlatives of all types and world records. Friedrichstadt-Palast lights up Berlin-Mitte and is also where major galas and events take place, including the Berlinale and the German Film Awards. Familiar faces have always passed through the theatre’s door, ranging from politicians including Michail Gorbatschow, George Bush Sr., Helmut Kohl and Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel, to Hollywood stars such as Colin Firth, Leonardo Di Caprio, Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway.

If you would like to experience something extraordinary in Berlin, something that is unique in the world and visually stunning, then Friedrichstadt-Palast in Berlin’s “East End” is your first choice.


International Show
With 14 million guests over the course of three decades, the Palast is Germany’s most-visited
entertainment stage. Shows have been performed here for over 100 years, and with great success. They are also well-suited to guests without knowledge of the German language.


THE WYLD – Out of this world

With 14 million guests over the course of three decades, the Palast is Germany’s most-visited
entertainment stage. In 1919, the theatre was founded by Max Reinhardt under the name ‘Großes
Schauspielhaus’ (Great Playhouse). In 1984, it reopened in a new building at Friedrichstraße 107.

Shows have been performed here for over 100 years, and with great success. In common with all revue shows at the Palast, the Grand Show THE WYLD doesn’t have a continuous storyline. The succession of grandiose numbers is held together by a common thread: a declaration of love for Berlin, a city that is as strange as it is wonderful. For THE WYLD, the star avant-garde Parisian designer Manfred Thierry Mugler and Roland Welke designed breathtaking show scenes that will turn our world upside down.

Before becoming a haute couture designer, Mugler was himself a ballet dancer. He also created worldfamous perfumes such as ‘Angel’ and ‘Alien’, was one of the makers of ‘Zumanity’, a Cirque du Soleil revue that has been running in Las Vegas for over 10 years, and was artistic director for (Beyoncé) on her ‘I am…World Tour’. He recently took modern cabaret to Paris with his ‘Mugler Follies’.

Ten choreographers worked on the current show, which features 60 male and female dancers. It is the world’s largest continuous show ballet company. In conjunction with the lighting designs created by the French designer Alain Lonchampt, a visually breathtaking synthesis of the arts, comprising stage set, video and light installations, has come into being. With a production budget of over ten million euros, the largest in the Palast’s history, THE WYLD is the most expensively produced show outside Las Vegas. Shows presented by the Palast are also well-suited to guests without knowledge of the German language.

On the world’s largest theatre stage, Berlin’s new Grand Show combines extraordinary characters, breathtaking artistry and the legendary row of showgirls, all presented in opulent scenes. With over 100 artists, THE WYLD is the most lavishly produced show outside Las Vegas. Experience a truly cosmic love story. Supernaturally beautiful and out of this world.

The Grand Show THE WYLD celebrated its world premiere on 23 October 2014. Now running until mid-July 2016: THE WYLD – OUT OF THIS WORLD.

Children shows
Especially younger pupils, kids, and adolescents are enthused by the children shows of Friedrichstadt-Palast’s Young Ensemble. Each year, more than 1.000 children apply to become a member of the Young Ensemble, which, with its more than 250 kids and young people from more than 20 nations, is Europe’s largest youth ensemble.

During three months of the year, the Young Ensemble regularly performs in front of capacity crowds in impressive show. And be assured: the show will also knock the kids out of their chair.
